Medicare Rebate for Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring in the diagnosis of Hypertension.
The High Blood Pressure Research Council of Australia has undertaken a major initiative to apply for a Medicare Rebate for Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring in the diagnosis of Hypertension.
Ambulatory Blood Pressure readings are more closely linked to cardiovascular outcomes than clinic blood pressure, and improved access to ABPM will support optimal cardiovascular and renal health in the Australian community.
The application was submitted to the Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) in late 2018 and after a preliminary meeting in Canberra, has now been placed on the MSAC website for public comment.
A public consultation survey is available at http://www.msac.gov.au/internet/msac/publishing.nsf/Content/1572-public, and should take 15 minutes to complete.
